From the Organizer

Hosted by Marin American Indian Alliance & Sponsored by Marin Community Foundation and County of Marin. All are welcome to the 2nd Annual Marin Powwow as we join in celebration of the Indigenous communities that live and work in Marin on Coast Miwok land.  Since 1968 the Marin American Indian Alliance (MAIA) has been a place where Indigenous people get together to share traditions, songs, dances and prayer so we are excited to have this opportunity to bring the community together in this good way.  Between all the various Nations represented in the Bay Area there is a wide variety of traditions about welcoming the springtime, but we can all agree that getting together to sing and dance after the challenges of winter is an important and welcome celebration.  Open Gourd Dance at 11 am Grand Entries at 12 pm and 5:30pm Traditional Powwow (no contest) Azteca Dancers: TBA Hawaiian Dance Group: Halau Hula Na Pua O Ka La’akea California Indian Dance Group: Su-Nu-Nu-Shinal Hoop Dancer: Eddie Madril (Pasque/Yaqui)  Turtle Island Award Presentation Native American Arts & Crafts Vendors Native American Food Vendors (Taos Cafe, Al Pastor Papi, K&P Kickin Kettle Korn) Drug & alcohol free event Vendors by Invitation Only (No Drop-Ins)   HOST STAFF MC:  Tom Phillips (Kiowa/Muscogee)  Arena Director: Reuben Crowfeather (Standing Rock Hunkpapa) Northern Drum: All Nations Southern Drum: Red Buffalo  Head Man Dancer: Darren  Henson (Keetoowah Cherokee) Head Woman Dancer: Yvonne Marshall (Shoshone Bannock/E.Shoshone)  Head Teen Girl: Rainy Wilcox (Dine/Ohkay Owingeh) Head Teen Boy: Tank Young (Cherokee/Choctaw/Jacarilla Apache/Taos Pueblo)   General Info: 415-342-2049 or Publicity Coordinator,
